Skippy just specifically said why Wikipedia is not an accurate source and you immediately started to speculate as to his "real" reasons. Wikipedia is not a reliable source. This is why no reputable institution will allow you to use it as a reference. It is true that it can be used as a means of finding reliable sources, but that is not the same thing as being a reliable source.
But this is a common tactic for you isn't it? Someone points out that you don't know what you are talking about, so you start talking about something else and try to pretend that is what you were talking about all along. Oh how clever. Now you shall surely bask in the adulation of us all. What a fucking original.

If you do, I hope I never cite one of your papers.
And with that, I'll bring my involvement in this thread to an end. It has been fun restating my position 42 different ways in hopes that it will get through. Alas, it has not.

Listen..I can point you to peer reviewed, scholarly works from the 1930s and 40s on eugenics, and they have ALL the proper dressing. Those works were used to justify the murder of millions. There are countless Wikipedia articles that are more based in fact than those were, at the time.

The truth is often that the Wiki page is 100% accurate, but you'd need to leave the Internet to actually find some of the terms and things written about there, etc.

Amusingly, the quantum entanglement article contains this text—the rough equivalent of "incomplete, revise and resubmit" written on the margins of a term paper:
This article includes a list of references or external links, but its sources remain unclear because it has insufficient inline citations. Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations where appropriate. (January 2009)

This thread was a bit more fun when it was about my Si-Tai-Tai-Tai-Gung's alleged photo and less about Wikibitchin'.
The message in short is to take Wikipedia with a grain of salt. Most of my college professors don't allow it as a cited source, so take that for what it's worth. Great place for some quick information or a quick synopsis, but definitely needs other source fact checking.
